Welcome at the Peace Village

The Peace Village Hostel, situated in rural Messines, is the ideal group accommodation and base for a visit to Flanders Fields and the Ypres Salient. The hostel overlooks the Messines ridge battlefield of Belgium's smallest city with landmarks such as the Island of Ireland Peace Park and the New Zealand Memorial to the Missing.

The Hostel excels in tranquility, space and offers great facilities. It's perfectly equipped to accommodate both medium size and large groups. We can welcome up to 165 guests in 43 studio's, each with their own living and sleeping area and en-suit facilities. Our evening activities and bar help to keep groups occupied in the evening whilst you enjoy the beautiful sunset on Kemmel hill.
